Let us see step by step preparation of ginger tea with milk


  1. Take ginger and cardamom in a mortar and pestle.
  2. Crush little bit. Crushing will enhance the infusion of  flavors faster.
  3. Take the crushed ingredients and three cups of water in a saucepan.
  4. Reduce to one cup. Cook on medium flame till its colour changes to mild yellow. This will ensure the ginger and cardamom flavors are infused with water. 1 cup of milk will be added to the tea, and we are reducing water to 1 cup, so that we get 2 cups of tea.
  5. Add 1 cup of milk, boil again.
  6. Add tea powder as soon as the milk starts to boil. 
  7. Simmer it if you want a strong tea, if not, just switch off as soon as you add the tea leaves.
  8. Sieve hot ginger tea through a strainer.
  9. Serve hot.
